Dez Bryant Defends His Sideline Antics in Cowboys-Lions game
Dez Bryant is pissed. Yesterday the Cowboys WR had what appeared to be a meltdown on the sidelines as his team dropped their fourth game of the season to the Detroit Lions. After the game, Dez Bryant defended his actions.
“I’m the nicest person off the field. When I’m on the field, even when I look angry, it’s still all good passion. It’s all good passion. I feel like that’s what we need. I’m going to remain the same way. I feel like I love this game. I love it. In order to win, you’ve got to be passionate about this game. You have to be. You’ve got to let that dog come out and just put it all out there on the line.”
Jerry Jones also defended Bryant.
“Not in any way did it concern me,” Jones said. “It’s not a negative for our team. Matter of fact, when he started that as I saw timing-wise, we started playing better on our offense and the defense didn’t hear it. They were out on the field. It’s not an issue.
“I’m not trying to make light of it. But he’s a very passionate player and he competes and works and does all the things that give him the collateral to use with his teammates and with me relative to a few awkward moments on the sideline, overexpression of passion. He’s bought enough slack with me.”
Dez Bryant is very much a passionate player. He seems like he is the only one in a Cowboy uniform that cares when they perform poorly and lose games that they had in the bag. If the Cowboys are going to have a chance to make the playoffs, somebody is going to have to light a fire under them. Maybe Bryant did just that.
After watching the game do you think Dez Bryant was right to throw a fit or do you think he was behaving immaturely?
